  1. Hi All, Reference the Just Plug lighting system. I have installed all sorts of lights on my 00 gauge layout including lights in my station building, offices, signal box, plate layers hut etc etc. These have required the appropriate expansion packs & in some cases extension leads. It really is very easy to install & literally 'plug & play' albeit at a cost. I have this week ordered the 3 street light pack - JP5677. These are ideal as the 3 light's cables come together into one connector which in turn a single cable will plug into my last remaining port. On r
  2. Hi All, Look what turned up today..... I have had my eye on one of these Kernow class 47 for some time, however my budget has been required elsewhere on more ‘essential’ items for the layout. Well if you don’t have a baseboard you can’t run anything! Anyhow, yesterday afternoon I placed my order & less than 24hrs later, a knock at the door & the postman had a parcel for me. Superb service - thank you Kernow. And the loco? Outstanding! Highly recommended. The distressing on the class 47 is incredible. If you are considering this loco & are

  4. Hi Darryl, That is indeed 59,002 in the background & I have attached an image that I took again in Aug 2090 at the Old Oak Common open day showing this loco in the Mendip Rail livery. Perhaps a thought for a second run for Dapol & their class 59..... Same disclaimer applies - photo of a photo. Enjoy.
  5. Hi All, Like others have noted here, I am dissapointed by this decision by Hatton's. I had one on order (the BB Rail variant) & was eyeing a second in the original all over yellow livery as well. Perhaps, Hatton's could of increased awareness of the situation before making this decision. Hopefully, this will be a 'postponement' not a 'cancellation'.
  6. Hi Darryl, This conversation was concerning the Foster Yeoman liveries as applied to the O. & K. Hopper wagons as Dapol are bringing 2 versions out next month. I was looking for clarification on the time lines specifically when the re-livery was applied. i have established this to be in 1998 for the class 59’s & assumed the wagons were done at a similar time when Mendip Rail took over although, happy to be corrected on this. As an aside, I have attached an image from a class 59,005 (which was one of the first to be re-branded in the revised Yeoman livery) that I took at
  7. Hi All, Thanks for the information & I am sure people will find this informative. Personally, I have previously looked on Google & although images can be found, putting a precise timeline on the re-livery of these wagons proved inconclusive. I have just had a look on Flickr & can only see images of the class 59 or other Yeoman wagon variants - Doh! Anyhow, through my investigation, I have determined which version of the Dapol wagon is best suited to my time lines so have placed my order. Stay Safe people & thanks again to Lyneux & Roy.
  8. Hi All, I have dug out an image from my visit to the Old Oak Common open day back in Aug 2000. This shows the Yeoman O. & K. Hopper in the revised livery. Just behind can be made out a PTA Tippler in Yeoman livery too. Apologies for the quality as it a photo of a photo.
  9. Hi All, So in answer to my own question, I have been doing some research which may help others. After the formation of Mendip Rail in 1993 with the amalgamation of Yeoman & ARC there was dialogue about rebranding. A decision was made in 1998 to introduce a new livery & subsequently three of the class 59's were painted in the new livery at Marcroft Engineerings facility at Stoke-on-Trent. I am therefore assuming the wagons would of been re-branded at a similar time (but quite happy to be corrected on this). Hope this helps.
  10. Hi All, Some clarification required..... With the pending launch of these Yeoman wagons I understand the original livery was 1988/9 but I am looking for clarification on when the later livery was introduced....
  11. Hi All, With the Dapol class 59 now set to be launched in Q2 2021, can anyone confirm when these hopper wagons will become available. Thanks.
  12. Hi, Have you checked the back to back's?
  13. Hi All, Talking of creating loads for the new BBA's, I produced a few more yesterday. Even thou I say so myself, I think they have turned well.
  14. Hi All, slighty of topic, earlier in the week I took this photo of 90 024 in the stunning Malcolm logistics livery. Thought I would share here. Enjoy.
